2019 ZOCALO Folk Art Fall Newsletter

Saludos a todos!

Since our last newsletter, there have been many changes in Pátzcuaro. Our new project, Destino Pátzcuaro is now open at Dr. Coss 12, located only a half a block from the Plaza Vasco de Quiroga (Plaza Grande) in Pátzcuaro, Michoacán! Destino Pátzcuaro is the new home of zócalo galería and three other wonderful galleries and stores with more on their way. We are showcasing collectible folk art, Mexican dance masks, graphic art, paintings, jewelry, milagro art, antiques and much more. It has been much work but we are more than happy with the results!

Day of the Dead was once again an incredible experience. Our tour was a wonderful mix of people and we all enjoyed the market, concurso, traditions, customs sights and food. zócalo galería was not only one of the judges for the concurso, but the sponsor of a special prize. Dates for our 2020 Day of the Dead tour will be announced soon (a preferred list has been started).

Please take note of our next three cultural tours (information below), a few spaces are still available. Remember our tours are specifically limited to a small group so that we may open doors that others cannot.

Please visit us in Pátzcuaro or join us for a tour of a lifetime!

Muchas gracias!
